If any Arsenal fans out there are friends with, or know anyone who is friends with, or has the telephone number of, or knows someone who might bump into, players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi, Edinson Cavani, Paul Pogba and the like, have a word will you.
Because it appears that Arsene Wenger is ready and waiting for them to pick up the phone or knock on his door and ask for that dream transfer to join the Gunners. The poor old prof is not even sleeping apparently, just in case he misses that crucial call.
Well judging from the latest comments from the Frenchman, reported by the Arsenal website, that seems to be our brilliant and proactive policy on transfers (sarcasm overload). Let´s not be sheep and follow the rest of the Premier League clubs by actually going out and bidding for players, let´s wait for them to come to us.
Wenger said, “I am always confident that a last-minute situation or solution is available, because the transfer market is especially moving in the last four or five days. But at the moment I cannot promise you that.
“We have specific targets but sometimes you get an idea from somebody because you didn’t know that the player you like was available and if you get an opportunity you do it.
“We work very hard, you know I have a team around me who work day and night to find good solutions. I am 24 hours available per day, so I am involved in the decision of course, but at the moment we are not close to signing anyone.”
It is my wife´s birthday next week and I have not arranged anything or bought her a present yet, but I reckon that someone will come up with a brilliant idea for me soon and surely some traveling salesman will come and knock on my door with the perfect present. If not, I an sure that she will accept that her awful birthday is not my fault, no?
